Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Nothing.

Upon seeing the word prompt, the memory comes flooding to mind.

I cannot even count the number of times I sat in church and our pastor had us recite, motions and all … that neither height nor depth, nor anything at will ever be able to separate us from the love of God.

At times, we may have felt silly moving our arms in every direction, but oh the wisdom of our pastor to make sure the Scriptures would be indelibly imprinted in our hearts and minds. Never to be forgotten.

Yet there are times when the question lingers in my thoughts, “Can this separate me from God?”

And then I remember:

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39, NASB)

Paul was so confident in God’s love for him that he wanted all of us to live in this same confidence. He tells us in these verses that God will never stop loving us, His love cannot be taken away from us by anything, or anyone.

In a nutshell – God loves you just as much today as He ever has. Nothing can ever diminish, not add to, His love for you.

His love also wins out over everything and everyone. There is never a moment where we are ever unloved by God.

“If God hath loved me once, then He will love me forever.”
(Charles Spurgeon)

May we be convinced that
can ever separate us from the love of God.
